This cooperation project aims to develop working methods and tools that can guide management and control authorities and professionals when developing long-term scheduled conservation plans for cultural heritage based on the principles of sustainability, and to optimise the resources available to them. The project considers the Sacri Monti as emblematic testimony of the centuries-old flow of artists and technique and material-sharing on both sides of the Alps.
The activities to achieve the above aims include initiatives for understanding, conserving, managing and improving both religious and tourist sites.
The Centro focuses in particular on the Sacro Monte of Varallo and has established an experimental workshop in which advanced diagnostics, innovative technical solutions and tradition merge to develop good maintenance practices.
